“You’re wonderful,” the words rolled off their tongue before they had a chance to articulate them. A humble smile wove into their features, but they didn’t break her gaze. “I value you and whatever connection this becomes,” Namid gestured between them, “so it’s a two-way street. Whether about family or boundaries or the question tickling your thoughts.. I want to be open with you, too.”

— Namid Argimeau, Scientific Intel

“You are as well,” Kiama replied with a soft smile. She suddenly had a tingly feeling in her stomach and felt heat rising to her cheeks. “And so do I. On the one hand there is still so much we don’t know about each other and at the same time I feel like we have known each other much longer than we actually have. Do you know wh I mean?” she asked and locked her eyes with Namid’s.

“It’s almost…” Namid’s gaze wavered in thought, only to trace its way back to hers. Bewildered, they shook their head and took in a soft, reflective breath, “…surreal. As you said, we’re practically strangers in the social sense, but this feels natural.” Their cheeks seemed to rust, turning a deep shade of red. “And that’s not something I can say for most.”

“Yes,” Kiama replied softly, her smile tender.

Their meal had deserted itself to the back of Namid’s mind. In its place, an idea started to brew. “Tell me if I’m overstepping,” a bashful grin infected their lips, “but when are you free, next? There’s something I’d like to show you.”

“I will. You aren’t, though,” Kiama replied sincerely. “I’m currently working alpha shift, as you do, if I remember the duty schedule correctly that I created. So I’m generally free in the evenings. My next full day off is two days from today and of course we all get R&R and shore leave as soon as we’re back at Event Horizon. So, yeah, whenever works best for you just let me know and I’ll be there,” she continued, a glimmer of excitement and almost giddy anticipation in her black eyes.
